Orthopedic McKinney. By Administrator23. April 2016 11:38 Knee Tendon Bursitis is a condition affecting the Pes anserinus (goose’s foot) bursa, a small fluid filled sac located between the tibia and tendons of the hamstring muscles, sartorius, gracilis and semitendinosus. The condition occurs as a result of inflammation of the bursa, causing it to produce too much fluid and swell which, in turn puts pressure on the adjacent structures within the knee joint. People who are obese, aged 50 to 80 years or involved in high impact sports activities are more likely to suffer from Knee Tendon Bursitis. Causes Repetitive knee movementsImproper sports training, such as lack of warm up exercises, excessive uphill running or sudden increase in running distancesDirect blow to the kneeTight hamstring musclesMedical conditions, such as Osteoarthritis, Knee Cartilage Tear or Flat Feet Sudden twisting of the leg with the foot planted on the groundA forceful out turn of the knee or lower leg Symptoms Diagnosis Treatment.

The labrum is a fibrocartilage which lines the socket cavity and keeps the joint stable. The bones and muscles are further supported by various tendons and ligaments. Although this condition usually does not have any disabling effects, it may lead to the development of Hip Bursitis if not treated properly.

Orthopedic Carrollton. By Administrator28. May 2016 06:08 The shoulder is a typical ball and socket joint where the humerus (rounded part of the upper arm bone) rests in the socket called glenoid. The humerus is much larger than the socket and a layer of soft tissue called labrum lines the inner part of the socket which creates additional space for the humerus to fit in, which helps in keeping the joint stable.

Many ligaments join the bone and muscles within this socket. Tearing of this soft tissue lining is termed as the Glenoid Labrum Tear.

Hip Pain Carrollton. By Administrator17. June 2016 07:37 Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) is an inflammatory disorder of the knee joint that affects adolescents who actively participate in sports activities. The inflammation typically occurs at the point within the knee joint where the patellar tendon is attached to the shin bone. Adolescents experience growth spurts due to the development of tendons, bones, muscles and ligaments. Physical activity, such as running and jumping, further increases the pressure on the joints and leads to inflammation. Growing children have special growth plates that are covered by the tibial tubercle, a bony structure, at the end of the shin bone. Causes Overuse of the knee jointSports activitiesChanging direction rapidly while running or jumpingDirect injury to the kneeDetachment of a piece of bone from the tibia due to the pull exerted by the ligamentsTight quadriceps or hamstring muscles Symptoms Diagnosis Treatment.
